Mix It Up With Jenny - Giftable Holiday Goodies

(Family Features) - Nothing spreads holiday cheer quite like sharing some homemade goodies with friends and neighbors.

I love giving creamy, chocolaty fudge to folks - it's always a hit and it's so easy to make. I have a new cookie recipe to share this year, too, and I'm very excited about it. These lemon cookies have just the right amount of bright, lemony flavor that balances beautifully with the white morsels in every bite. And dipping them in the melted morsels not only adds more of that great taste, it makes them very pretty, too.

I hope you have as much fun as I do baking and sharing your favorite recipes this holiday season. You can find even more giftable goodie recipes at

Good Health Kettle Style Olive Oil Potato Chips

Good health kettle style olive oil potato chips, 5-ounce bags (pack of 12) is made from olive oil which has been one of the mainstays of the Mediterranean diet.

Today, olive oil evokes images of the old country with its simpler and slightly slower lifestyle – what we like to think of as "the good life."

We have tried to capture a part of this lifestyle by using 100% olive oil to kettle cook our chips.

The result of our efforts are chips with a hearty crunch and all natural taste.

Kettle cooking in 100% olive oil also makes these chips a delicious source of mono and polyunsaturated fats.
(These chips are quickly becoming our favorite!)

Recipe for Snow Day Cookie Shovels Cookies

Mix It Up With Jenny - Snow Day Delights

(Family Features) - Gray winter skies keep many a kid peering out the windows, hoping to hear two magic words - Snow Day! When snow or bad weather keeps the family indoors for too long, however, the excitement can fade into boredom if you're not prepared.

That's why I like to keep a few tricks up my sleeve to turn snow day doldrums into snow day delights. What can you add to this list?

  • Indoor picnic. Turn the family room into a picnic area with blankets and fun foods. Have the kids draw outdoor scenes for a cheery backdrop.
  • Scavenger hunt. Give them fun clues that will have them searching all over the house for silly items. Who knows - they might even find those missing toys...
  • Old-fashioned forts. Pull out blankets and sheets and let them turn the living room or dining room into a fort or secret hide out. You'll be amazed at how long they can entertain themselves.
  • Baking goodies together. Of course, this is my favorite thing to do. I love this fun recipe for Snow Day Cookie Shovels - they're a real treat after shoveling real snow!
